Visit two of England’s most popular UNESCO World Heritage sites on this day trip from Oxford. Unravel thousands of years of history on an audio-guided tour of Stonehenge — arguably Britain’s most important archaeological site — and then continue to the spa city of Bath, where you’ll see the Roman Baths, Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent and other attractions on a walking tour.
On the morning of your tour, make your way to the prearranged meeting point in central Oxford, where you’ll join up with your guide and set off aboard a climate-controlled coach to Stonehenge.
Located roughly 70 miles (113 km) from Oxford, Stonehenge is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has been an important pilgrimage site for philosophers, poets, Neopaganism and tourists for thousands of years. During your 1.5-hour visit, make use of the included audio guide to hear theories behind the purpose and creation of the mysterious site, and enjoy the freedom to explore independently.
Next, continue to Bath, a postcard-perfect city in the West Country that owes its name to its Roman hot springs. Here, you’ll enjoy a guided walking tour of the historical center. See the caramel-hued crescents and terraces that inspired Jane Austen’s Persuasion and Northanger Abbey novels; and snap photos of famous sights such as Bath Abbey, the Roman Baths and the Royal Crescent.
Afterward, enjoy time at your leisure to continue exploring before traveling back to Oxford. Your tour concludes at the original departure point.
This was a fantastic way to condense two wonderful sights into one day. Time to see each place and a great tour guide with interesting information. Loved this experience.
Lana was an excellent guide, bus driver, Steve was terrific,
Tour guide Sam and bus driver Tibby were great!
